Did my research and everything said this was a great B&B and sure enough they were correct. Brilliant hostess, fantastic breakfast, lovely room in a quiet area but still within easy walking distance of all the main attractions of Florence. The owner Donatella could not do enough for you. I would definately recommend this B&B

Their recommendations for shops, restaurants and points of interest were most helpful. Donatella is an accomplished cook as... More

Our stay at B&B Monte Oliveto was lovely. Donatella was so warm and friendly. She was incredibly helpful with her suggestions of things to do and see in Florence. Donatella helped us by making reservations, recommending the best places to eat and even sharing her umbrellas on a rainy day. The house is filled beautiful flowers and Donatella's exquisite art...

Donatella and Niccolo are the owners of B&B Monte Oliveto and they welcome you as if you were family. We rented the attic suite which had its own private bath, patio, and tiny cute kitchen.

Monte Oliveto is perfectly situated across the Arno giving providing a more relaxed and restful experience than more central accommodation. The 15 minute walk into or from the centre is straightforward but you will be distracted by the many delights along the way (bakeries, coffee shops, gelaterias and restaurants and wonderful views across the bridges). We stayed for 4 nights... More
